Yahweh, Rescue My Soul
For the choir director. With stringed instruments. According to the Sheminith. A Psalm of David.
O Yahweh, do not reprove me in Your anger,
Nor discipline me in Your wrath. 2
Be gracious to me, O Yahweh, for I am pining away;
Heal me, O Yahweh, for my bones are dismayed. 3
And my soul is greatly dismayed;
But You, O Yahweh—how long?
Return, O Yahweh, rescue my soul;
Save me because of Your lovingkindness. 5
For there is no remembrance of You in death;
In Sheol who will give You thanks?
I am weary with my sighing;
Every night I make my bed swim,
I flood my couch with my tears. 7
My eye has wasted away with grief;
It has become old because of all my adversaries.
Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity,
For Yahweh has heard the sound of my weeping. 9
Yahweh has heard my supplication,
Yahweh receives my prayer. 10
All my enemies will be ashamed and greatly dismayed;
They shall turn back, they will suddenly be ashamed.
